PSA for Hot Chicken in the South Bay


#1

Putting in a PSA for the South Bay folks. There is a pop-up Nashville style hot chicken shop called Blazin’ Hens inside the Slider Stop on Artesia in Redondo Beach. It’s good enough to make you think long and hard about trekking to downtown for Howlin’ Rays. They are doing it right: crackling skin, good heat, piece of white bread and some pickles. I got the medium and the hot and while the hot did get me sweating, there was less of the umami bomb from Howlin’ Rays and more straight heat. I’m not a huge fan of ass burning heat so I won’t comment on how hot it gets, but the menu does list a “Blazin’” featuring Carolina Reaper peppers.

Thank you for the report. I’ve had this bookmarked for a while and have wondered.
